+ I am going to tell a real life happening story and I have decided to tell this story because well, the only stories the papers think are worth tellling are the "society going to the dogs" stories. And I think it's about time we had a new angle. I was in a restaurant last night, when a girl about 18/19, excusing herself repeatedly interrupts the couple next to us to ask the lady if she has lost a ring. The young girl had found one in the restaurant bathroom and had seen the lady leave just before, she had handed it to the staff but was so concerned for the person who had lost it, she wanted to check with the lady herself. In the end it wasn't that woman's ring and the girl apologised again for interrupting their meal, the couple wouldn't hear of it and thanked the girl for being so considerate <3
+ Basically the point of this story is that; I LOVE people, I think they are wonderful and kind and good and thousands of headlines to the contarary will never convince me otherwise. And the moral; have FAITH in each other, the world is good.
+ Speaking of wonderful people, taday is someonescomet 's birthday. So, Happy Birthday! You haven't been on my flist long but you have already firmly established yourself as one sweetest people on lj. I know you've been having a difficult time of it lately but enjoy you're day, relax, eat lots of cake, sing and dance and take some time for yourself, you deserve it sweetie :)
+ I watched Marley & Me yesterday and with twenty or so mintues to go I realised I was going to cry over a dog movie. Then I figured it was OK to since it was one of the best films I've seen in a while; funny, pretty to look at and with some really touching moments, it didn't shy away from how hard life can get and was by the end quite life affirming. If you haven't seen it yet, do, you won't regret it.
+ Because a few of you asked me to keep you updated I have decided to attend the Univeristy of Dundee next year. I rhink it will be good for me to leave home and strike out on my own, thankyou all so much for your help and advice, your stories were reassuring and made me a great deal less scared. :)
+ I've been a bit M.IA recently, due in the most part to school, just finishing off coursework and the like, but it's the Easter holidays now. Two weeks off, and end of lent on Sunday! I have missed chocolate sooo bad.
+ Basically I've been attempting to decide where to go to University next year. I'll be studying History and it's between two Universitys, The University of Dundee and the University of Liverpool. They're both really good academically and student satisfaction wise, but Dundee is four hours away and Liverpool is home. So my decision is purely based on whether I want to go away or not. Any help, opinions or expereince of uni life is much appreciated. :)
+ This song just reminds me of summer. And Dawson's Creek, but that reminds me of summer too. I'm very nostalgic today :)
Dress it up with the trappings of love
I'll be captivated
I'll hang from your lips
+ Mother's Day MIxtape was a huge success, so thankyou for all your help.
+ It's been sunny the past few days. Like middle of summer sunny, everything was beautiful, everyone was happy. Today it's cold, the skies are grey and it has rained of and off, misty, can't keep dry, soaks through your skin rain. Everything is not as beautiful, everyone is not as happy.
+ No matter how much work I do, my to do list just seems to get longer and longer. Teachers are throwing it at me faster than I can complete it. I suppose this is just the usual end of year 13, gearing up for exams work, but it's seeming never ending load is starting to get me down.
+ SPN. I thought you were done ripping my heart out? No? Sorry, my mistake. Also, promo for next week. I, just. BOWS DOWN TO KRIPKE.
+ I had more to tell, but I can't remeber now. Have a fic rec instead;
+ It's gorgeous and angsty and full of tension and just about the most perfect pre-series fic ever. She is a master of Sam and Dean and oh, why are you still reading this. Go read it.
+ How are you all? I feel out of touch. Tell me about your day, something funny and random, share people.
+ Flist, I need your help. I'm putting togther a mix CD for my Mum as it's Mothers Day on the 22nd in lovely England. I have most of my songs but I want some good ones so here's your chance to bowl me over with musical knowledge. The mix is basically centred around the song "Where you lead" (Yes. Shameless Gilmore Girls stealing, I know) and I want the whole mother/daughter "got your back" vibe. So, any suggestions? Thanks!
+ Oh how I have missed you SPN Thursdays. Though technically I won't get to see it till Friday morning, but I have MISSED them and their STUPID PRETTY FACES. I hope this episode lives up to the promo and I NEED me some brother time. To celebrate this most momentous day, I'm combining my favourite things, meme's, quotes and Winchesters :D
When you see this, post a quote from Supernatural.
Sam Winchester: Well, before we go stabbing things into Cooper, we're gonna wanna make damn sure it's him.
Dean Winchester: You're such a stickler for details, Sammy.
+ Talking of Dean. I know I said I'd srtop with the campaign posters, but this one's for the win. It the battle to end all battles. That of Dean vs. Barney. Show your love for the awesomest big brother ever. Vote.
+ We rented "Lars and the Real Girl" last night and it might just be the most adorable film ever. It was gorgeous and perfect and funny and uncomfortable and I love that town and all it's residents. I really do recommend it, all the performance are just right and Ryan Gosling just knocks it out of the park and I want to take Lars home and feed him cookies <3 <3
+ Twitter. I have finally surrended. And now I'm addicted. I think I've added everyone on my flist who has one, but if I have missed you out or you feel like coming over to the dark side, then I'm still hollydoodle19. Add me!
+ Also, fandom marchmadness is upon us once again. Preleminaries have already happened, but you can go vote for your favourite characters here. Just one request show your Jensen love and vote Alec from Dark Angel please? And you know...

+ I was creative today! I made cupcakes and a card for my friends 18th birthday. I am very proud of myself.
+ I also finally got around to watching "P.S I Love You". It wasn't as good as the book but that's sort of expected and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, it was funny and sweet and obviously heartbreakingly sad at times. On the plus, JDM was being his gorgeous usual self, with the added bonus of an Irish accent. :)
+ I did that "25 Things" meme/quiz on Facebook and I thought it would be good to put it on here. So, for you perusal here are 25 posssibly interesting facts about me.
( Click here for the 25 nuggets of gold :) )
+ I had the most amazing night yesterday, Imelda May was playing the Baby Blue Club in town and me and some family members went down to see her. Happy times ensued. She is gorgeous and awesome and I have a mega girl crush on her. She also has the greates band to exist. Period.
+ I'm not going to add much to the Jared squee. Mainly beacause he leaves me VIRTUALLY INCOHERENT. I mean HIS FACE. All I will say is that I'm going to see it tomorrow, on the HUGE CINEMA SIZE screen. I may not survive.
+ I wrote a Dean/Jo fictlet for featherjean's eight second challege, my prompt was "Supernatural, Jo, grown, learn, change"
( Read more... )
+ SNOW! Real, actual, swirling white flakes, snow! :)
+ Last night I went to a Teddy Thompson gig. He was wonderful and funny and lovely and his voice, seriously, it's like honey. Tift Merrit, the support was amazing aswell. I think I am slightly in love with her. So I will link to her webpage, listen to "Another Country" it's beautiful.
+ My little sister is in stress city over her GCSE Art Exam and History Coursework and her returning asthma so I am being lovely and sweet and on Friday when she's feeling better we're going to see "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" and eat tons of popcorn.
+ Regarding Supernatural, I can have my spin off nao? I have such mega amounts of love for Brock and Colin it is not even funny. I need the pretty icons.
I'm not entirely sure what to say here, because I hardly know how I feel. If numbness is a state then I'm pretty sure I'm there. This is just too strange and too sad and my condolences go out to his friends and family.
Although those in the Supernatural fandom never knew Kim Manners his contribution to Supernatural and the heart he brought to the show means that his death has affected us all. Many of my flist have expressed a wish to do something to honour this and his memory,pocketfullof is collecting donations in Kim Manners memory for the American Lung Association here if you would like to give, she is also open to other suggestions.
I don't want this to be an issue, I am not attempting to cajole anyone into participating, this is just the way I would like to give a kind of thanks to Kim Manners.
